of ronald reagan and tip o'neill who were about as far apart politically as you could get, but they were able to come together and find common ground on some of the thorny issues that existed economically in the 1980s. that's not happening today because so many of the politicians view these issues as defining who they are personally. they take it personally, and that's a problem right now. don't you think? >> yeah, i think so. i also think that we're at a very different moment. when we talk about the kind of spending back then, we were arguing a lot about defense spending under ronald reagan. >> absolutely. >> we really needed to be arguing more about entitlement spending, which never got taken care of. now we have this huge, huge problem where people expect so much. they've been promised things. that's what makes it extremely difficult. >> let's face it. the stakes are much, much higher now. the zeros we're talking about -- >> are huge. >> have a "t" in front of them. we're talking trillions of dollars on an annual basis right now. by the way, more of steve's interview in the coming 30
's the biggest gain since ronald reagan was president. but there's a catch. two-thirds of those jobs are part-time positions, taken because no full-time work was available. and there's another troubling sign: >> what we have is hiring that is concentrated, most recently, in the government sector. hiring that is concentrated, most recently in education and healthcare. a little bit of positive news coming from construction. but in a lot of the business services and goods-producing industries and manufacturing, things look pretty soft at this moment. >> reporter: in addition, 2,000 temporary jobs were cut, which is often looked at as a barameter of future employment. but, the average work week rose to 34-and a half hours... and employers typically boost the workload of existing staff.. before taking on new workers. with all these cross-currents, the employment situation may be but the bottom line seems to be that the economy is improving, but not nearly as quickly as most people would like. >> we lost so many jobs during the great recession, that we are slowly clawing our way out of that hole..
bush is that he is not ronald reagan. >> largely as result of policies and priorities of the reagan administration, more people are becoming poorer and staying for than any time since world war ii. >> if there's anything left of ronald reagan's trickle-down theory, it seems to be anxiety which seems to be trickling down to just about every segment of our society. >> if you gave clarence thomas all little flower, you would think -- here is a man who is against everything that has lifted the level of life of millions of blacks. >> i hope his wife feeds him mustard eggs and butter and he dies like many black men, of heart disease. that so i feel. he is a reprehensible person. >> you call to gingrich in your words trickle down terrorists who face their agenda on division, exclusion and fear. you think middle-class americans need protection from that group? >> the new republican majority took a big step today on the legislative agenda, to demolish or damage government aid programs. many of them designed to help children and the poor. >> the bombing in oakland the city has focused renewed

ronald reagan after he lost? he said that mondale failed to land his knockout. not mondale is a liar and a horrible person. >> steve: they took the high road. >> gretchen: it's interesting because the president did say that he made a gaffe, that he wasn't his best performance, but put his other surrogates out there to call mitt romney as liar and he alluded to that himself on the stump. did that stick or did that further irritate voters who hadn't made up their mind yet? that's the big question in some these polls. was it solely the debate performance of mitt romney or was it the reaction as well by the obama camp that turned off voters as we're look? >> steve: the next debate is coming up on thursday. >> brian: i think it's going to be huge. >> steve: i do, too. because it will be the ohm time we'll get to see paul ryan and joe biden. joe biden being sequestered. he's out of commission for six days. meanwhile, paul ryan taking on reporters. here is an exchange with a local guy in detroit from the abc affiliate in flint. >> have a gun problem. this country has a crime problem. not a
and derailed laterr the entire term. and fast forward to 1980, jimmie carter against ronald reagan. and big story was the hostage release gave birth to night line and also birth to the american wondering would today be the day. october day right before the election came the release of the hostages. >> steve: surprise was, that republicans thought jimmie carter was sitting on the release of the hostages. he worked out a deal with the iranian to get them loose. he hadn't . 144 days and ronald reagan they were. >> gretchen: on the day of inauguration of ronald reagan. it feels like 2000, bush-gore. five-days came the revelation that george bush was arrested for an old drunk while driving. >> brian: dwi. driving while intoxicate the poems close we saw what happened. two monthses of not knowing who the president was. >> steve: two months later president bush squaring off with john kerry. and osama bin laden tape just a few days before election. john kerry told the associated press it changed the entire dynamic andagitated people over 9/11 . of course, john kerry lostt. >> brian: but kerry though
of bipartisanship, that he praised the fact that tip o'neill and ronald reagan had worked together when he has spent the last year sucking up to the tea party is something that the president should have -- >> here is robert gibbs defending the president on "meet the press." gibbs tried to tackle romney's debate flip-flops. i think he did it here. let's watch. >> it's not rocket science to believe that the president was disappointed in the expectations that he has for himself. but, look, i think part of that was because, as i said earlier, we met a new mitt romney. we met a mitt romney that wanted to walk away from the central theory of his economic plan which is his tax cut. i don't have a tax cut that's $4.8 trillion or $5 trillion. i'm not going to cut taxes on the rich. i don't have a medicare voucher plan. i love teachers, i think we need more of them. i mean, look, don't believe me, speaker gingrich was pretty eloquent in running during the primaries in saying, look, mitt romney will say absolutely anything to get elected. >> well, one thing i have been saying about the campaign is the presiden
heard in the 1980s, for example? we keep hearing about the relationship between ronald reagan and tip o'neill and their willingness to compromise, even though they were about as far apart politically as you could get. >> bill, i agree with what you said and what rick said about that. i think it's wrong to say they're honest and they're the way they are because they're not in office anymore. i think what's more correct is they both come from an era where you fought, and you fought hard. but once the vote was taken, you know, they were kind of done. it wasn't really a scorched-earth policy. i grew up in a household where there were many politicians held in high esteem. they were guys like jacob javitz who were held in high esteem. >> reread "alexander hamilton." there's never been civility in politics. >> that comes and goes. that's a cyclical situation. we had a civil war. that was the most contentious period in the history of our country. >> that doesn't make it right. >> i'd like to bring up one additional point. two other things were brought up that we haven't really talked about. one
was there when ronald reagan -- >> 800 million billion -- >> i've been to afghanistan 20 times. >> i was there, man, million billion, it's the cripplingest of crippling sanctions, like, ever, man. that's where i would go. >> what touted me was the loving way paul was staring at joe while he was talking. made me think about what might he have been thinking when he's staring at paul with this loving gaze? i wondered maybe he might say tell me more about how you used to get legislation passed in the continental congress. >> nice. >> very grandfatherly. >> i'm not a funny person. my thought was -- >> oh, stop it. >> you're not intentionally funny. >> thank you. >> yes, you are. >> do the exact opposite. how about biden is presented as a calm, placid figure. >> yes. >> precisely worded sentences and -- that's all i got. >> and ryan comes out in his outfit from "time" magazine, his weight lifting magazine pumping iron. >> oh, man. the ha the hat backwards. >> that would be awesome. >> whatever happens it's going to be amazing. >> great ideas. >> i'm sure they have ideas of their own. >> since biden

policy will rest on essentially the same views as ronald reagan's, that the way you achieve america's objectives in the world without unnecessary conflict is by dealing from a position of strength. this is a so-called peace through strength doctrine. i think what charles was saying is that obama has a very different view, that for obama it's america's strength that is provocative, that our presence in the world is what causes other people to behave badly to us, and that if we were less in the world, less assertive that things would be better. gene fits path strike called it the blame america first view and i think that's quite descriptive of how obama sees our place in the world. martha: when you look at iran, which i think most people accept as the most dangerous threat to the middle east, and to israel, certainly, that is out there right now, how do you think governor romney would handle that differently? it's a very difficult situation. >> i think he's trying to convey that after three and a half years, that the obama administration has donnie sepb tim donaghy essentially nothing
bipartisan agreement. >> do you have the specifics? >> look at what ronald reagan and tip o'neill did. we raise about $1.20 trillion through income taxes. we forgo about $1.10 trillion in loopholes and deductions. deny those loopholes and deductions to higher income tax payers. so we can lower tax rates across the board. >> i hope i am going to get time to respond. >> we want to work with congress on how best to achieve this. >> no specifics. >> lower tax rate 20%. start with the wealthy. >> you guarantee that this math adds up. >> let me have a chance to translate. i was there with ronald reagan. he gave specifics in terms of tax expenditures. 97% of the small businesses make less than $250,000. hedge funds that make $600 million a year. let's look at how sincere they are. governor romney on "60 minutes," 10 days ago, was asked, you pay 14% on $20 million. someone making $50,000 pays more than that. do think that is fair? he said, yes, that is fair. you think these guys are going to cut those loopholes? the biggest loophole they take advantage of is that carried interest loophole and cap
to that amount. i'm not certain what it is, but i do know this. a philosophy that john kennedy had and ronald reagan has. you want to lower the tax base and broaden the base. we have heard many discussions about how many americans are not paying taxes. if we get more people back to work and paying taxes and contributing, that does have a rising tide and does lift all boats. do we want to have a lower tax rate with more people paying ai? host: jim is on the republican line from corpus christi, texas. caller: one of your guests made the remark that in ohio, being a purple state, they go republican or democrat. they don't have a lot of passion for politics -- politicians to get the job done. i don't think we should wait forever for a difference to be made. another comment i wanted to make, i am a big believer in the best man will win. that this not just apply to candidates running for reelection. the best companies will survive. i think bailing out these things, intervening, it's probably not a good idea. host: thanks for the call from texas. guest: in terms of the impatience of ohio voters, i t
done before. >> it's been done a couple times, actually. jack kennedy, ronald reagan -- >> oh, now you're jack kennedy. >> don't bring up that. at one point during tonight's debate, paul ryan described the stimulus law as a giveaway to special interest groups. vice president biden had prepared a response to that one. >> i love my friend here. i'm not allowed to show letters, but go on our website. he sent me two letters saying, by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin. we sent millions of dollars. you know why he -- >> you did ask for stimulus money? >> won it occasions. we advocated for constituents who were applying for grants. that's what we do. >> i love that. i love that. this is such a bad program, and he writes me a letter saying the reason we need this stimulus, it will create growth and jobs. his words. i wish he would just tell -- be a little more candid. >> unlike last week's presidential debate, tonight's debate did include some discussion of women's health issues, specifically each side's stance on abortion. >> if the rom

. >> no president has had real organization authority since ronald reagan. i would think that needs to come back. i would go so far as to put some back of authority that was lost after the nixon era. but congress has got to help. some committees in congress are not very good managers of departments is got to be an accommodation here, but you cannot leave the size and the structure of the government we've got in place. this big government that functions in the 19th century organization model, and by the availability of 21st century technology, everybody is automating everything, and it's very painful, very slow. you look at the demographics of the federal workforce. they are aging. attrition would take care a lot of this is a good be accompanied by rigorous management. i mean, president obama prior to becoming president, largest management he had ostensibly the senate office. that's not exactly, you know, great training to run one of the largest enterprises known to m man.
